Celeste wants to have her hair cut and permed and also go to lunch. She knows she will need $86. The perm costs twice as much as her haircut and she needs $5 for lunch. How much does the perm cost?

    Let x = cost of haircut then 2x = cost of perm . x + 2x + 5 = 59 3x + 5 = 59 3x = 54 x = $18 (haircut) . Perm: 2x = 2(18) = $36 . Lunch: $5
